To prevent Aquasure, Seam Grip and Freesole from hardening in the tube please folllow the Instructions for use.
Use Aquasure to seal leaky gasket seams.
STEP 1: Turn suit inside out.
Clean damaged area with McNett Cotol-240 plus or isopropyl alcohol.
Non-fabric surfaces such as latex should first be roughened with
sandpaper, then cleaned.
STEP 2: Apply Aquasure in a 2 mm thick layer overlapping seam edges by
at least 12 mm. Use included brush to saturate fabric surfaces.
Dry level overnight.
Use Aquasure to seal seams on diving gloves
Lengthen the life of your diving gloves by
reinforcing the glove seams. Apply Aquasure in
a 2 mm thick layer, then spread with a brush –
overlapping seam edges by at least 6 mm.
Use brush to saturate fabric surfaces.
Aquasure is also ideal for repairing holes and tears. For holes larger than a
pinhole, create a backing with removable tape. Fill hole and 6 mm beyond.
Remove tape after Aquasure has fully cured.
Create an ultra-tough, exible knee patch with
Aquasure to protect suits from abrasion. Simply
apply a thin coat of Aquasure with a disposable
plastic knife. Dry level overnight.
How to prevent Aquasure, Seam Grip and Freesole from Hardening in the Tube.
Seam Grip, Freesole and Aquasure are moisture-cure adhesives. As soon as you pop the top on the tube and expose the adhesive to the moisture in the air, the countdown begins. Unfortunately, you are unable to stop the curing process, but you can slow it down by storing the adhesive in a dry environment like your freezer. We typically recommend storing as follows:
Begin by advancing the contents to the tube neck to remove any air that may be trapped in the tube. Next wipe the tube threads clean to prevent the cap from sticking. Next, cap tightly. Next, place the adhesive in a plastic zip-lock bag. Next, store the adhesive in a dry environment like your freezer. When ready to use, run the tube under warm water for about a minute.
While this will not stop the adhesive from curing, it will help slow things down.
We give an un-opened tube of adhesive a two-year shelf life. The “batch-number” will be crimped into the bottom of the tube. The adhesive is typically good for two years past the date of filling.
“Aquaseal is the ultimate heavy duty fix for high wear areas where you need something strong and permanent but also flexible. I use Aquaseal on my neoprene gloves that I use for hiking. The gloves get a lot of abrasion from rocks during scrambling and from my trekking poles the rest of the time, but the Aquaseal protects them completely.” -Justin Lichter aka “Trauma”— Extreme Long Distance Backpacker. Completed all three ‘long trails’ in under one year: Pacific Crest Trail, Continental Divide Trail and Eastern Continental Trail – (the extended version of the Appalachian Trail: Cape Gaspe to Key West).
“…a hole in my neoprene waders about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Cut a patch out of some worn out waterproof neoprene gloves. Glued the patch over the hole, put a heavy weight on it over night. Used them in the morning setting out my decoys. Not a leak to be felt. Worked so well I touched up some other areas that looked bad. Thanks”– P., Torrey New York
“I tried a lot of products for repair of punctured hip boots and none lasted. I then tried Aquaseal, and, using thin nylon for reinforcement, permanently sealed the waders. I also used it successfully on old rubber-bottomed hunting boots. I’m going to purchase more of the same product to have on hand for future punctures and tears to waders, hip boots, and rubber-bottomed hunting boots.– Wayne W. Orwell, VT
“You will need it and it is the most popular for a reason. One application before you go in the water is all it takes. I used it snorkeling in Hawaii for two weeks and I have no complaints.”– L. Wolfe, Chandler, AZ
“I had a couple of pin hole leaks on my waders. I turned them inside out and filled them with water. Marked the areas that were leaking, dumped the water out and let them dry. Used this stuff on the areas marked and no more leaks. Much cheaper than new waders.-T., Tennessee
Kayak cockpits are notorious for cutting into spray skirts and causing exterior cracking. Apply spot applications of Aquaseal to permanently repair and protect both the interior and exterior.
Use Freesole® to permanently re-bond a peeling boot sole. First remove loose dirt and debris and then clean the area with rubbing alcohol and a stiff brush. Apply Freesole to the sole evenly.
